Episode Summary

EDIT
During an expedition to a civilized planet, the stargate of that world is hit by a meteor, trapping O'Neil on that world without any apparent hope of rescue. While he slowly gives up his old life and joins in with the relatively primitive civilization of this world, the SG team tries to find a way to reactivate the buried but still-intact stargate and rescue him. The only means to do so is to send Teal'c through on a suicidal one-way mission to tunnel out of the stargate before his air runs out.moreless

  • What is the music played in this episode?

    7.5
    As some others, I find the music in "A hundred days" extremely good. Does anyone know where this can be found?
  • Meteor shower results in Jack getting stuck off-world...

    7.5
    The best part of this episode in my opinion was the music, it fit Jack's initial melancholy and later how he came to terms with his situation. That said, Jack's performance in this episode could have been a little better, as it was it was a little too predictable, however I did like his outburst towards the idiots who stayed behind and didn't go through to earth. It was really kind of a slow episode with the high point, for me, being when Teal'c finally breaks through the cavern created by the gate and Jack calls him a stubborn S.O.B. I also liked the line Jack said about how he will never truly be able to leave behind his life on earth, that seemed to be a pretty realistic thing to say. All in all an average, or maybe slightly below average episode, no harm in skipping this one if you want.moreless
  • Three months away...

    8.6
    I do not know.. I liked this episode, is the first feeling I am coming across. Then the next thing I think is - it was not too special. It tried to be more that kind of emotional episode, but it was not that too. The start was visually impressive - those asteroids. That really caught me. I also loved the idea - to be away from Earth for three months.. get a new life.. and then being pulled back.. great emotional dilemma on that part.



    Anyway, it was good and catching episode, a great thought provoking one.. and the idea was great.moreless
  • Good Jack episode

    8.6
    I have mixed feelings about this episode. First off the visual effects are terrific especially the meteor striking the gate which is one of my favorite moments in the season. This story had a nice twist with Jack being stranded. It made the episode more interesting then a planet being hit by meteor. The highlight of this episode for me is the performance of Richard Dean Anderson who as always steals the show. My biggest complaint about this episode is the relationship part but I do think that Rick and Michele Greene had great chemistry. This episode had a bit of a pacing problem after the fast start it really slows down after the gate gets hit. Overall a decent episode that has it's moments.moreless
  • Not as great as I seem to remember, but it's not bad either.

    8.0
    I remember when I watched this episode when I was younger I had rather fond memories of it. However, when I watch it now it doesn't seem as great, but it does have plenty of things going for it.



    It has a pretty interesting story. What could've been a rather boring story about a planet being bombarded with meteors is turned into a far more interesting story when O'Neill is left stranded. The romantic element of the story doesn't really work for me (maybe because I'm a guy), but I've heard some of the female fans like it, so maybe it's just me.



    I also have to say the falling meteors are quite effective. They're very realistic and spectacular (especially that near-miss at the beginning), and the added effect of the ground shaking really helps make them that much more realistic. But of course, the standout moment (arguably the most memorable moment from this episode, and one of the most from season 3) is when Carter and Teal'c see a meteor pierce through a cloud and come toward them, forcing them to dive through the Stargate.



    There is a bit of humour in here, but not as much as I'm used to from this show (and it doesn't really help putting this episode after "Urgo", or maybe it does as a change of approach). There are some pretty good gags such as "There's always one like you in a crowd", "Well, first I had to make the nails...” and my favourite "Teal'c, you are one stubborn son of a..." (Well, you know the word). That is such a great line and a great moment, as well as great acting on the part of Richard Dean Anderson.



    In summary, this is a pretty good episode. It may not be as good as I remember, nor one of my favourites, but it has a lot of good points and some spectacular sequences.moreless

    • Jack: So Laira, when's the big show start?
      Laira: Soon, be patient.
      Jack: No I'm patient. I'm nothing if not patient...when's it start?

    • Daniel: (pointing to a cave wall) You see, the further down these striations we go the further back into Edora's past we travel. You see these layers are different. They represent Naquada dust... thrown up by impact events.
      Garan: Cool! Uh, J..Jack, says that.
      Daniel: Yes, he does...

    • (discussing a treaty)
      Jack: Well, there are a lot of things we could help you out with... medicine, technology, education... we'd become friends.
      Laira: We're already friends.
      Jack: Closer friends?
      Laira: (chuckles) My mother taught me to be wary of men wishing to be closer friends.
      Jack: Well, if you'd like, I'll negotiate this treaty with your mother, that way there'd be no conflict of interest...

    • Paynan: Year after year, the fire rain comes, goes and harms no one. Do you not see what they are doing? They want us gone so they can claim our lands for themselves.
      Daniel: That's not true.
      Paynan: If you go with them, you will never see your land again.
      Jack: Oh, for cryin' out loud! There's always one like you in a crowd. You wanna stay... stay.
      Laira: I have come to know these travelers... and though their world seems far, it is only a step away. I will take that step in good faith. If you wish to follow, join us at the stone ring. And if you do not, may the ancestors protect you.

    • Laira: Come, I'd like your company.
      Jack: I don't even like my company right now.
      Laira: You will again. Loss is that way. I mourned my husband for a hundred days. I never left my house. I never spoke to anyone.
      Jack: After that?
      Laira: I left my house and I spoke to people. (holds her hand out to Jack) Walk with me.

    • Laira: Paynan has invited you to evening supper.
      Jack: Why? He doesn't even like me.
      Laira: He's very grateful for all the help you've given him in rebuilding his home.
      Jack: I just hammered a few nails. Well, actually I made the nails first, and then I hammered them, but...

    • (about Laira)
      Paynan: She is a fine woman.
      Jack: Yes, she is.
      Paynan: Took you long enough to see that... I was afraid you were going blind.
      Jack: Well, if I've gone blind... it's from whatever we were drinking last night.

    • Sam: I'll make some more observations tonight, sir.
      Daniel: I'm going to check the geological record in the morning.
      Jack: I'll... make a wish?

    • (Team talking about a meteor that just flew by.)
      Jack: Carter... how close was that?
      Sam: Close, sir.
      Daniel: How big?
      Sam: Big!
      Daniel: Thought so.

    • Paynan: Well, what do you think?
      Jack: Absolute rotgut. More please.
